Constructed in 1911, the Bennington State Bank is significant for its association with the development of Bennington and the surrounding area. Between 1911 and 1928, the Bennington State Bank helped shape the lives of those living in and around Bennington. Aside from its importance to the community's business sector, the bank also had close ties to the surrounding agricultural sector. As a result, the bank struggled during the agricultural depression following World War I to the extent that it was finally forced to close its doors in 1928. Still, the physical integrity of the building reflects the important role the bank played in Bennington's history.
